SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Rhamel Brown scored 18 points, 11 after halftime, and Michael Alvarado added 17 as second-seeded Manhattan broke away from seventh-seeded St. Peter's 72-58 in a Metro Athletic Association quarterfinal Saturday night.

St. Peter's Chris Burke hit a 3-pointer to come as close as 58-52, but Manhattan finished on a 14-6 clip.

Alvarado scored 13 points at the free throw line as the Jaspers sank 29 of 42 attempts. Manhattan owned a 33-27 rebounding edge, with Brown collecting 10.
